Bro. Tan led a group of Nalandians in a pūja this morning in honour of the most Venerable Acharya Buddharakkhita Maha Thero who passed away on Monday, 23 September, at the age of 91.  Bhante’s cremation ceremony is scheduled today in Bangalore at 10am local time.

In his brief sharing, Bro. Tan recalled Acharya Buddharakkhita’s visit to Nalanda Centre a few years ago, and the emphasis Bhante placed on quality Buddhist education.  Bro.
